"And this is not all. Do ye not suppose that I know of these things for myself? Behold, I testify unto you that I do know that these things I have spoken are true. And how do ye suppose that I know of their surety? 46. Behold, I say unto you they are made known unto me by the Holy Spirit of God... 48. I say unto you, that whatsoever I shall say unto you, concerning that which is to come, is true; and I say unto you, that I know that Jesus Christ shall come, yea, the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace, and mercy, and truth. And behold, it is he that cometh to take away the sins of the world, yea, the sins of every man who steadfastly believeth on his name. 49. And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren."
-Alma 5:45-46,48-49

Book of Mormon stories

Dear family and friends.

This week has been a little cold actually. I think it got in the 80s.
Had to wear a sweater. You could say I've acclimated.
I am so excited to tell you all about who we are teaching!
So we still have Cecilia that we are reaching out to but she hasn't
reached out to us since we've given her a date. So not really sure
what happened there because she was so interested! Please pray for
We picked up a new investigator, Mychal. He has autism and he reached
out to us wanting to know more about the Book of Mormon. We taught him
the first lesson with ease, and he said that he has prayed and read
the intro to the Book of Mormon our first visit. His parents really
want him to change and he has that same desire too. So we are excited
to work with him.
A miracle that happened was that we finally saw lily and Alyssa! They
are really busy, but we caught them at home and were able to share the
Book of Mormon with them. They said that they had prayed about Joseph
smith and still aren't sure but we assured them that all their
questions could be answered by reading the Book of Mormon. They said
they would start with the first chapter!
David got the priesthood this week so that was really good for him!
Joy has been doing well and mostly spent every day with us going to
lessons. Sister feng is working hard and still finding time to go to
church and she will be going to our English class that we are starting
up at the institute! I love our recent converts.
I truly love the Book of Mormon. I'm re reading in 2nephi now and even
though it's super difficult right now because Isaiah doesn't
appreciate speaking any other way besides messianically, I still
appreciate the messages that it contains. For me, anything can come
easily as long as you are putting in all your effort to understand it,
or do it. The Book of Mormon is true. It has blessed the lives of
people I have taught here. It has blessed my life. It gives me
direction and peace. Especially peace. Even Isaiah could give me peace
if I work real hard to understand. And pray. Don't forget to pray.
So that is my message for you all this day. Have a splendid week :)
good luck in school. Read your scriptures and say your prayers.
